Looking Back to Tomorrow

Looking Back to Tomorrow charts the establishment and development of public arts institutions in the UK since the 1960s, looking at alternatives to conventional art education, the rapid globalisation of the art world, artist residencies and the role of philanthropy. Included are transcripts from Camden Arts Centre's fiftieth anniversary lecture series and a text by writer and critic Sarah Kent reflecting on Britain's changing cultural landscape over the past fifty years. This reader considers how we can develop sustainable cultures of changing, making programmes accessible for everyone and showcasing challenging work, whilst fostering careers of underrepresented and emerging artists during uncertain times for the arts.
